Like most farmers, my husband loves a good hearty chili. With all the vegetables, cheese and meat in it, this dish makes a super supper—and it comes together in one skillet on top of the stove. I serve it frequently in fall and winter. —Katherine Brown, Fredericktown, Ohio


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 cup canned or frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
  • Thinly sliced green onions, optional


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef, onion, pepper and garlic until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the next 7 ingredients; simmer, covered, until rice is tender, about 25 minutes.
